How to merge code and resolve conflicts more easily using git?

There is a great option --patch which can be used with git add.

Using this option I can easily review all my changes and decide which chunks should be added to staging area. This interactive process can be made through all modified files.

  • Subversion resolve all conflicts quickly
  • Do git conflict resolution files not always represent every line in the source files?
  • Git: how to accept “theirs” version of a submodule conflict?
  • git submodule merge conflict: how to visualize?
  • jgit to detect conflicts before merge and apply merge strategy
  • Restoring git merge conflict flags
  • I am looking for something similar for resolving conflicts. After rebase or merge you will often get list of both modified files.

    Is there any command which:

    1) will help me iterate through all this both modified files? This is very annoying when I have to copy every path to file to manually open it.

    2) will resolve all conflicts automagically always using HEAD/main version?

  • Why does 'git checkout' work only for some branches?
  • Possible to use git project AND see TFS work items in VS2013?
  • git clone doesn't download everything
  • Why won't Jenkins build my project when I push to Github?
  • How to manage multiple long running feature branches in Git?
  • git: better alternative to regularly pushing a rebased branch

    You should have a look to the git mergetool that should be of help resolving conflicts through command line.

    Try p4merge. You can easily configure it to work with mergetool and interactively choose which version do you prefer.

    After years of searching, I finally found solution to my problem! It is not perfect, and for sure this is not resolving all my problems, but definitely this speeds up my work!

    It is called git imerge (incremental merge).

    At first, this is a little overwhelming and seems complicated, but the idea standing behind incremental merge is very simple.

    For sure, you should take a look on git-imerge presentation from the GitMerge 2013 conference (20 min).
